We stayed at Old Mill Cottage over half term May 2013. The cottage is nicely done out with everything you need and spacious too. With young children in tow they were delighted with the garden space and the addition of nearby ducks and chickens, the play park and river to throw stones in. Location wise this property was better than we could ever have hoped for with a pub with garden and good food, two shops and a bakery also all within 100 paces....and not forgetting that Blair Castle is a short walk away also. We loved the cottage and enjoyed exploring the immediate area as well as going further afield (less than one hour) to Aviemore and Glamis Castle. Ideal location and very friendly locals!
